St Michael’s Autumn Lectures led by Dr Brain Marshall

October 15, 2019



Explorations of Christian Faith and Doubt for Today’s World

 Dr Brian Marshall

A series of four talks and discussions based around Rachel Held Evans’ book Searching for Sunday: loving, leaving and finding the Church  plus other material.  The chapters of the book are named according to the sacraments of the Church, hence the titles of the talks.  The late Rachel Held Evans has written a refreshingly open and honest account of why she and her husband have had periods of absence from the church, and yet have also been drawn back by the power of the sacraments and Christian community at their best.

Lectures will be held on the above dates at 8.00pm in St Michael’s Church, Abban Street, Inverness

Before retiring to the Highlands, Dr Marshall spent 30 plus years teaching Christian Theology in Leeds and Oxford.  The talks are intended for a wide audience; anyone with an interest in the reasons for being part of the church.
